Christmas Poinsettias

Hello, I had a chance yesterday to play in the studio and I knew I wanted to join in with the latest challenge over at The Color Throwdown, so that is what I did. I fell in love with the colors they have this week as soon as I saw them. The colors are Pink, Mint and Grey. I will definitely be filing this color scheme away for future use. I loved it so much I made two cards! I now have 30 Christmas cards done for this year! Woohooo! I have to stay ahead of things personally, so when the Holidays roll around I will have time to make cards for the stores. I am pretty proud of myself considering how many other things I have going on right now.

My swirly wreath looks black in the photo but in actuality it’s grey.

Here is card number two.

Card Details: On the first card I had a great time making the script paper that you see in the background. First, I embossed a very light grey sheet of card-stock with a script EF, then I took a mixture of white and silver ink and dragged it over the raised letters. Then I came back with some grey ink and distressed it a bit. It looks way better in person. The dotted background die is from Sunny Studios. The Poinsettias are from Memory Box and made with some gorgeous ombre DSP I came across. The leaves and the free form wreath are from Stampin Up. I have used sparkly silver paper for all my accents. I love the way these turned out and I think I will be making more!

I am also going to link up over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.

Thanks for dropping by and please stay safe, Nanc’
